, carla mayor nucci. it was interesting because of course if mitt romney does not win ohio, i mean, he has to win iowa. >> this has been a battleground for how long now? those early voting -- early voting. >> jennifer: it is only six electoral votes. early voting in iowa is largely in the president's favor. >> same thing in colorado. the obama campaign has that ground game down. particularly, i went door-to-door with latino canvas workers. they were just getting it out and working like crazy. i think the obama campaign has got their stuff together there. >> jennifer: so many people have made up their mind and acted upon that early. >> in nevada, another state where the latino vote is really changing the picture. >> jennifer: you were there. you saw some of that, too. >> just last week. crowds of californians are going there. have gone there for the last three weekends, particularly to with a shaw county which is a swing county near reno and down by vegas. those two areas are just a hotbed of activity right now
in florida. these are pictures of romney in ohio the other day where they shifted gears from the victory rally to a relief rally. although everybody said it was still a campaign event because they showed campaign videos. anyway. but the most important thing, chip, out of this is that romney refused to answer reporter questions on his stance about fema. and these are very warranted questions, obviously because of sandy and also because of his statements made in the primary debates when he was questioned by john king. so this situation is not looking too good for mitt romney right now. an these are valid reporter questions, correct? >> yeah, look, i think all questions are valid whether the campaign thinks so or not. i'm not going to sit here and justify governor romney's comments on fema. what i think he was trying to say is any time you get a federal agency and give them more money and power to the states, they do it better. i can be -- i can say that when i was in the governor's office here in tennessee. our emergency management team did such a better job dealing with tornados and the t
romney romney. joan walsh joins me for that. >>> romney continues to run bogus commercials in ohio even though he knows they are false. ohio state senator nina turner and chris redfern are here with reaction. stay tuned. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." in sandy's aftermath good government was in full effect and frankly mitt romney is on the wrong side of it. governor chris christie of new jersey praised the federal government and president obama in particular. >> i was on the phone for the third time yesterday last night with the president of the united states. he called me at midnight last night. he accelerated the major disaster declaration for new jersey without the usual red tape. i can't thank the president enough for that. signed that this morning. and so i have to say this, the cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground at our intelligence center, and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> mitt romney, on the other hand, cannot run from his declaration about fema during the campaign. the primary c
's been some variance on this. i don't think there's been a poll that's had romney closer than two in ohio. there was one ohio poll -- >> this weekend. >> i forgot about that momentarily. but mostly what we've seen over the last months and acutely over the last couple weeks is a lot of polling that has obama three to five points ahead. and the internals that look a lot like this. and you know, we've discussed it ad nauseam why that is and what the effect of the auto bailout is and the fact that the unemployment rate there is way below the national average. people have a sense of economic optimism in the state. >> right. we're less than a week out. he's maintaining a five-point lead not only in this poll. he has a five-point lead in the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, one of the more accurate polls, at some point romney's people telling you and me and everybody else oh, don't believe the media polls. they've got all of the figures wrong. our internals show we're tied. at some point, that just doesn't wash. they've got to win michigan or pennsylvania or minnesota. >> i think that's righ
that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollster, neil newhouse, was saying that he doesn't buy some of these national polls, because he was just pointing out that the quinnipiac "new york times" poll, and said that was weighted more heavily toward registered voters than likely voters and thought that it sort of overshowed a little bit of enthusiasm for dem
as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish the record of creating jobs in the united states. remember, this new romney jeep ad claims that all factual statements in it, the implication is different, but the statements themselves say jeep is being built in china, which the ad says for the implication, of course, is this idea that they're moving some operations out of ohio to china and that's what both gm and chrysler are fighting back on is that perception. ohio papers pummeling romney for the ad. they called it a ploy in
to ohio. and in the last few days, the romney campaign has done some things even independent observers consider desperate. first came this from mitt romney last thursday in defiance, ohio, about an hour away from toledo. >> i saw a store today, one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america. i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it's fair, america will win. >> well, it sounds terrible, but it's false. did you hear that, false, what he just said. chrysler which was bought by fiat said it's not taking any jobs from ohioans, it's adding jobs. it also plans on resuming jeep production in china for chinese drivers. in other words, overseas production and overseas sales, not moving jobs from the united states to china. but then comes this whopper of a romney ad. customarily when one of the campaigns launch a commercial, they send us press releases, not this one. this started running unannounced in ohio and suggests that jobs are moving to china. let's take
responders in new jersey today. republican challenger mitt romney was in ohio tuesday collecting money and relief supplies for storm victims. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. >> reporter: from the white house, president obama has been calling the governors of storm ravaged states and one of romney's key supporters has been praising the president's leadership. >> his cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground and our intelligence center and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> reporter: while the president remains in washington, he's getting help on the campaign trail from former president bill clinton. >> i have worked very hard in this election and i'm not running for anything. >> reporter: clinton was in minnesota tuesday, a state where the race is tightening. he is expected to campaign in six battleground states for president obama before election day. tara mergener
, swing states and ohio, romney colorado. give obama ohio and new hampshire. i think the point i want to make about this map is a broader one and it's a criticism and an expression of bafflement about the romney campaign strategy. if you look at that map, to win to get to 270, they have to win virginia, florida, north carolina. got to win colorado. putting that together, pick off ohio or some combination of wisconsin and plus new hampshire, iowa, nevada. a combination there and the polls out of ohio and wisconsin, not looking good for romney. to me the issue is this. there are states on the map that could have been competitive. oregon, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and even maybe where obama had big margins in 2008 like 15, 16-point margins but you have to go back to 2004 to see, you know, a three-point race in minnesota. a three-point race in michigan. these are states, there's a lot of flexibility in these states. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think i
for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdiction. that's from his spokesman, ryan williams. is this a problem for him, susan? >> well, i think it becomes an issue for him because of what he said in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of s
with the federal government is what he said. today romney held a storm relief event in dayton, ohio at the same site he planned to hold a campaign rally. the instinct to help people is always welcome. the red cross will be the first to say canned goods are not useful in a situation like this one. >> a lot of goods here. i know there's more coming in. we'll box these things up and put them on some trucks and we're going to send them into, i think new jersey is a site that can distribute these to people who need them. but also if you can write a check to american red cross, that's welcome as well. >> romney then loaded some of the goods on a truck along with rob portman of ohio. questions about fema dogged the candidate. >> governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> let's turn to sam sign and also joan walsh. joan, let's go to you first. this is where the bs meets the reality when it comes to mitt romney and what he really wants to do with fema. this puts the candidate in a tight spot, doesn't it? >> well, yes, of course, it does, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when j

florida. >> reporter: just as important for romney is ohio, where he is under fire for ads suggesting u.s. automakers are about to ship jobs to china. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> reporter: chrysler and gm angrily denied that they are shifting u.s. production to china. and joe biden accused romney of lying and causing panic among autoworkers in ohio. >> thousands of them are calling their uaw reps, "is it true, is it true? is jeep really going to leave? is the announcement not true? are they going to shut down our plant?" what a cynical, cynical thing to do. >> reporter: but the romney campaign does see some positive signs out there, especially in pennsylvania, minnesota and michigan. three states that have been considered solidly democratic, but where the obama campaign is now suddenly playing defense, spending more than $1 million on tv ads for the final week. diane? >> also on the campaign trail, jonathan karl. thank you, jon. >>> and coming up here next, flammable gas leaking and it's not just a

that in in ohio and michigan governor romney's position on the auto bailout and relentless advertising and rhetoric the president's side is engaged in has hurt him with the people, connected to the auto industry. secd, ohio a pretty populist state, a pretty anti-wall street state, and governor's romney position in a state that is worried about outsourcing and competition with china, all of those themes have been teased out by the democrats in a way that may be disproportionately affecting ohio as to nationally and in even in some of the other battle ground states. >> rose: where is the momentum? >> well i think there are three possible out comes right now, cse obama win, close romne win o b romneyin and if you talk to some republicans, both connected to the campaign and one step away from the center of the campaign they are starting to talk about the possibility and you see in the republicans movement into pennsylvania, minnesota, and perhaps michigan the possibility that they are not just trying to hedge their bets or trying to expand the map out of desperation but a real belief this
new york times" blog 538.com. >> i mean ohio is a swing state for a reason, is that it resembles the united states, rural areas and suburban areas, you could certainly have a case where romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins ohio and iowa by one point that is possible, maybe a one or two-point shift but there is almost no way to look at the history of this country or try to do the more complex things, the mathematical models unlikely to have romney win the popular and have him lose the electorial college. >> rose: the sites and sounds of hurricane sandy, mark halperin and nate silver when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. additional funding provided by these funders. and by bloomberg, a provider of multimedia news and information services worldwide. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> hurricane sandy barreled through the northeast last night, the devastating impact was wide-ranging, cities and towns were hammered by the storm that left many without power and ot
